I have been working at EducationDynamics full-time (More than 3 years)
Been working with EdDy for a few years in multiple roles. Lots of flexibility and growth depending on your group but definitely need to put in some effort to standout to your direct managers and exec team. Not a very process driven organization. If that’s your thing you’ll have plenty of fun building out your own systems and strategies (possibly a con depending how your work.)
Overall the office is pretty relaxed and casual. Exec team is mostly transparent with company health ( more so than I’ve seen elsewhere at least)
New, much more modern office coming in early 2019 will certainly help how we are perceived both internally and externally.
Important focus on hitting financial results, so when it does get tight, you lose a bit on the casual and relaxed atmosphere mentioned above.
A couple of teams are running leaner on resources than they should be a lot of the time.
Advice to Management
Invest more in the junior staff ($$$ and skills) when possible
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EducationDynamics (Hoboken, NJ) in March 2011.
Excited and optimistic prior to interview; cautious and disappointed post interview. I spoke with two individuals of varying titles within their organizations. Essentially I was interviewing for a position where I would essentially be replacing one of the individuals I was speaking with. During the interview, the alarms went off as soon as I felt pressure to consider other positions within the company apart from the one which I had applied for ('the old bait and switch'). The final nail in the casket was when the person I would be replacing suggested that the position typically required 60 hour workweeks. 60 hour workweeks! Even with the bonus they were offering, working that many hours would effectively reduce my hourly rate down from $40 to $25-$28 an hour. So not worth it, Caveat Emptor!
